Living in Haiku, and on Maui in general, we have very few options for fine dining or even OK dining. This restaurant is a little gem. I am a person who really likes sushi and I am very happy this place is in my neighborhood....More

Great service and good sushi, they have quite a few inventive sushi rolls on the menu. I've had better in Kihei but Nuka was close tonight and decided to give it a try. We had a paniola roll, ahi salad, calamari salad and a few...More

This was recommended to us numerous times on one of our activities. The atmosphere is very laid back and their specials were different and tasty

Idk what cho1978 is talking about! We eat sushi all the time, all around the country and this is BY FAR the best. Forget going to kapalua and Wailea for awesome food, come here. We had the spicy edamame, sashimi plate and Hawaiian roll. All...More

The portions are small and way overpriced. I find it hilarious how all the great reviews are from visitors. Born and raised in Hawaii, this local knows way better sushi places on Maui with way better prices. I can only choose "fine dining" for its...More

We happened to drive by and decided to try Nuka for lunch. The selection was not the typical Japanese menu for us. So it was a little bit of an adventure, picking a couple of noodle dishes with bone broth and a specialty roll. Everything...More
